Articles of the Day 7/1/14: Hitler Had His Ambitions Too
“Iraqi troops battled to dislodge an al Qaeda splinter group from the city of Tikrit on Monday after its leader was declared caliph of a new Islamic state in lands seized this month across a swath of Iraq and Syria.”
“Monday was the quietest day in Iraq since the insurgent takeover of Mosul and Tikrit three weeks ago. In contrast to the political flurry over the declaration of a Caliphate by the Islamic State, there was little movement on the military front lines.”
“The jihadists terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS)– now trying to rebrand as simply the “Islamic State”– have released a new map that outlines the territory they aspire to conquer within the next five years. That territory spans from Morocco and Spain out to Sri Lanka and the border of China.”
Hitler had his ambitions too. Tribal intimidation tactics won’t work in every land against every people. ISIS expansion will be limited, however I think Jordan is very much at risk. It will be Gods will what happens.
“Nine leading rebel groups in Syria have rejected the Islamic State’s claim that it has established a Caliphate stretching across parts of Iraq and Syria.”
“The al Qaeda-linked army now conquering territory in Syria and Iraq ultimately wants its emerging Islamic state to be a launching pad for attacking the U.S. homeland, says a new congressional report.”
Obama’s response. 300-600 special forces advisors.
“I also urge all parties to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation,” says Obama in statement on murder of 3 teens.”
And calls for restraint from a weak uninvolved US president will be ignored by all parties. Clearly the US President has no idea how serious this is. Business as usual.
“IDF demolished the homes of the two main suspects in the kidnapping and killing of three teenagers, according to eyewitnesses.”
“Deputy Defense Minister says the tragic end to the kidnapping should also spell the end for Hamas.”
“The funerals of Eyal Yifrach, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Frenkel, Tuesday, July 1, whose parents decided to bury them side by side in Modi’in, midway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, was a national event, drawing many tens of thousands of sorrowing sympathizers from every segment of the population. Their anguish over the senseless murders of the three boys shortly after they were kidnapped on June 10 on their way home, was mixed with anger and demands for real retribution. They will not be satisfied with the government’s knee-jerk order to bomb empty Hamas and Jihad Islami facilities overnight, shortly after their bodies were found in a shallow grave in Kachil, a Palestinian village north of Hebron.”
“After the terrible announcement that the bodies of the three kidnapped boys were found, the Israeli Air Force bombed dozens of targets within Gaza. This is the most extensive operation in Gaza since Operation Pillar of Defense in 2012. Netanyahu: “If Hamas stops firing, we will too.”
“In French the World Cup games broadcasting was stopped to report the discovery of the bodies. In The United Kingdom and Italy, the murder is top headlines. The Arab world was the first to report to the bodies were found, and focused on Israel’s intent to punish Hamas.”
“The key Hamas leadership is in the Strip but an escalation there, in response to the killing of the three teens, would bring dozens of missiles down on Tel Aviv.”
“While Naftali Bennett urges major operation against Hamas, Moshe Ya’alon warns it would trigger all-out war.”
“Victims “join chain of martyrs who have been murdered throughout the painful history of the Jewish people,” Lau says.”
“Deterrence and sovereignty go hand-in-hand, according to MK Ze’ev Elkin.”
“Q. I read and hear everywhere from all different sites that we all need to be ready when the Lord comes to Rapture us. I don’t understand this. What is it we need to do to be ready? My understanding is that we need to be saved to be ready, and that’s it! Am I missing something here?
A. The only qualification the Bible givesus for going in the rapture is to be born again. This makes us a new creation in the Lord’s sight (2 Cor. 5:17), as righteous as God Himself (2 Cor. 5:21) and when it happens we’ll be changed in an instant from mortal to immortal, from imperfect to perfect (1 Cor. 15:51-53) and from being like Adam to being like Jesus (1 Cor. 15:49). What more could we do to prepare?
That said, it behooves us to live in a manner pleasing to the Lord while we wait, as an expression of our gratitude for having received the free gift of salvation and all that comes with it.”
“Q. Re: The Islamic State Of Iraq And Syria. So, you think the government of the AC will be an Islamic Caliphate? How do you reconcile this with the nation of Israel accepting it?
A. The only people who will be safe in Israel during the end times will be non-believers. (Heeding the Lord’s warning in Matt. 24:15-21 believers will have fled).
This is the group that Isaiah accused of making a covenant with death in order to avoid “the overwhelming scourge” (Isaiah 24:14-16). It was partially fulfilled in the past but many scholars believe the ultimate fulfillment will come in the end times.
Also Ezekiel 44:7-8 tells us one of the first things God will complain about after He returns to Israel in the Millennium will be the fact that they let foreigners officiate in the temple during the Great Tribulation. And finally Jesus told the leaders of His day, “I have come in my father’s name and you did not accept me. Another will come in his own name and you will accept him” (John 5:43). He was speaking of the anti-Christ.
These references show that an Islamic anti-Christ could be welcomed, even in Israel. In fact there is no prophecy about the anti-Christ that would make fulfillment by someone from Islam impossible.”
“Hadas Mizrahi, the widow of Baruch Mizrahi, who was murdered in a terrorist attack, is infuriated about an appeal against the demolition of the terrorists’ home who murdered her husband. “Where are my human rights? I was left with five orphans,” she stated.”
It does beg the question why ‘human rights’ groups seem to support the rights of Palestinian terrorists rather then Israeli Jews who are victims of Palestinian terror. Human rights groups just lose all credibility when they do this.
